Five Star Stories Manga to Resume "in a Short While"

13th manga volume to ship this fall

The October issue of Newtype magazine is announcing on Wednesday that the Five Star Stories manga will resume "in a short while," and that the manga's 13th volume will ship this fall. The manga went on hiatus in 2006 and relaunched in the magazine's May 2013 issue. It went back on hiatus this past spring as Nagano prepared the 13th volume for print.

Nagano launched his science fantasy manga series in Newtype in 1986, although the series has been running intermittently since then. The last regularly compiled book volume, the 12th one, shipped in 2006. To mark the 25th anniversary of the manga in 2011, Kadokawa reissued the manga series in a "Repeat" edition with previously unpublished art.

Nagano's own Toyspress, Inc. published most of the manga in English. ADV Films released the 1989 anime film adaptation in North America.

In 2006, Nagano worked on Hana no Utame Gothicmade, the film that he wrote, designed, storyboarded, and directed himself. The film opened in Japan in 2012.
